Hibernian vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Easter Road.
The Hibees are one of the best and most consistent teams in the competition. In fact, they are one of the contenders to be called ‘the best of the rest’ barring the two titans, Celtic and Rangers.
This season, they have been in good form, and are placed in the fourth spot at the moment.
However, they are just trailing by a single point behind the second-placed Celtic, and considering the recent struggles of the defending champions, it’s certainly possible for them to finish runners-up behind the all-conquering Rangers.
Going on, they also have a terrific h2h record against this rival over the years, and they are at home, where they have lost just twice all through 2020.
As such, expect Hibernian to have the upper hand this Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Buddies are an inexperienced team (since they were promoted to the top flight just few seasons before), and thereafter they had been a usual suspect to finish in the bottom-most tier.
However, this time around, they have changed the script, and are in incredible form. They are also scoring goals in plenty these days.
As such, the BTTS wager seems to be highly promising this Wednesday.
Hibernian vs St. Mirren: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had taken place just two months back, and then Jack Ross’s men recorded a 0-3 win on the road.
- They had registered 13 of the former 17 overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in five of the former six fixtures.
- Since 1998, the guests have posted just three league wins at this venue.
Hibernian vs St. Mirren: Prediction
Jim Goodwin’s men had lost five of their last ten away matches, and they have a total of just six wins on the road since October of 2019.
On the other hand, their counterparts are one of the toppers of the table, and they have lost just twice at this venue since December of 2019. They have also scored two or more goals in six of the preceding eight home appearances.
On top of that, they were also unbeaten in 22 of their former 25 overall fixtures. Furthermore, the Hibees also have a terrific h2h record against this opponent over the years.
As such, expect Hibernian to emerge victorious this match-day.
However, the Buddies had won seven of their last eight games, and they are on a four-fixture winning run on the road. Moreover, Ross’s men have a total of just three clean sheets at home from their past 15 appearances here.
For the reasons, expect St. Mirren to score at least once at the Easter Road.
